Arizona Falls

Arizona Falls  is one of those quirky places you're not sure what to think. Located at G.R. Herberger Park at 56th Street and Indian School,  the historic importance of this now modern structure is hidden by the everyday observer.  According to the Salt River Project (SRP) website, in the late 1800's people came to Arizona Falls to picnic, party and dance.  In 1902 the first Phoenix hydroelectric plant opened and ran unit 1950. In 2003 it reopened and now generates 750 kilowatts that can power up to 750 homes.

Many people (including me) enjoy using the canals for running, biking or just walking and enjoying the scenery.
